Cher's 'Mamma Mia' Sequel Trailer Appearance Has Given Fans All The Feels

Predictably entitled Mamma Mia! "Here We Go Again" is both a sequel and a prequel to 2008′s "Mamma Mia!", which grossed over $600 million worldwide.

The sequel to 2008's Mamma Mia follows a pregnant Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) as her mom Donna's (Meryl Streep) best friends Tanya (Christine Baranski) and Rosie (Julie Walters) arrive in Greece to help her on her journey.

The film appears to switch back and forth between past and present, showing how young Donna lived her life and fell in love.

However, some found comfort in the surprise appearance of another icon of a certain age, the 71-year-old Cher, who shows up as Sophie's grandmother at the end of the trailer-an interesting casting choice given Cher is just three years older than Streep. Joining the original cast is Lily James (Cinderella, Baby Driver), Universal Pictures will open in theaters on July 20, 2018. If you're not familiar with the original - beloved for its script, acting and soundtrack - it features a young woman about to be married.

But where, precisely, is Sophie's titular mother Donna, played by Meryl Streep? The young Donna is played by Lily James.

Mamma Mia 2 is due out in summer 2018, so you better start knocking together your denim dungarees now.

However, one detail from the trailer has Mamma Mia fans anxious about the sequel.

That's the set up for the flashbacks, and it has fans wondering why Rosie refers to Donna Sheridan in the past tense. According to US Magazine, some fans are interpreting that line as a troublesome sign about Donna's fate, saying, "why is she talking about her mother like she's not there?"

The death of Streep's character was always going to happen, it is believed, and isn't at all related to the criticism she has received for allegedly knowing about disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct. Do you think Meryl Streep's character could be killed off?
